Promises of music in education?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Learning in school is intended to help students master academic skills such as reading,
writing, and mathematics, as well as to acquire knowledge about different subjects such
as history, geography, biology, and so on. However, in the future, successful learning
will be largely manifested by students’ global and transferable skills, such as analytical
thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and social skills. Here we explore the promises
of using music to support learning in the future. We review empirical evidence on the
effects ofmusic learning on neurocognitive development in children in formal and informal
settings, in music interventions, and also in community settings. With this review, we
wish to stimulate discussion about the roles that music could play in promoting learning
in schools and elsewhere.
